Sergio Busquets was satisfied with Barcelona’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid as the Spaniard reckons the result was fair following their display on the day.

The midfield ace doesn’t think neither the Blaugrana nor Los Blancos did enough to seal a win in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final clash on Wednesday night

Barca came from behind to seal a draw with Santiago Solari’s side as Malcom cancelled out Lucas Vazquez's sixth-minute opener.

"Both teams had chances," Busquets said after the match as Marca reported. "But I don't think either team deserved to win more than the other.

"I think it was an even match and in the first half they played more on the counter-attack. The draw is the fairest thing."

Malcom was impressive for the LaLiga leaders and Busquets heaped praise on the 21-year-Old who signed moved to Barca for 42million from Bordeaux last July.

"Surely his confidence is good," he added. "The goal will give him a lot. What we hope is that everyone will help out."
